Ever wished you could graft together the sounds of 60s flower power and 90s grrrl power? Ever wondered what would happen if you threw Janis Joplin and Janet Jackson together in an L7 mosh pit? There’s a band for that: Haim.
This Los Angeles act (signed to a U.K. label) has yet to release a full-length album, but they have won the hearts of music industry executives and concert-going males on both coasts. Since the release of their three-song EP Forever last year, Haim have hit the road in support of Florence and the Machine, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Mumford and Sons. Not too shabby, sisters.
Haim’s real-life sisters Este, Danielle, and Alana have long hair that catches every breeze and legs that never end. ThereL7, ’s no denying they’re fun to watch. Make no mistake, they even more fun to hear. These girls are GOOD. Sure, they sing three-part harmonies, but they also play bass, guitar, keyboard, and drums.
Mumford and Sons closed every show of their winter tour by bringing the sisters back on stage for a joint cover of The Band’s “The Weight.” It says a lot that I can honestly say: Haim pulled their own.
Shake off your hangover and start your Sunday concert-going afternoon with them at the Governors Ball Music Festival.
